I live and work in Sunnyvale. anyone around here?

Purlescence just opened here in Sunnyvale. check it out if you haven't already.

*edit: not affiliated with the store, just excited and happy that I have a decent one so close by now.

Me too!
I live in SSF - don't know why my profile says "junior member" - I must have messed up when I registered! I'm definitely NOT junior - turned 50 this year -

I usually get my yarn at JoAnn's or Michael's - I'm a beginning knitter, and most of the stuff I make needs to be machine wash & dry (hats, prayer shawls, etc.). There is a nice yarn store here in SSF - Cottage Yarns - but the really nice stuff is $$$, and I don't have a lot to spend.

Am also into doing a little felting - have made a few bowls, slippers, and (believe it or not) pirate hats! Yup - pirate hats. I'm also working with felted wool sweaters - cutting them up to make tote bags, etc.

hi Roberta! I think the word "Junior" refers to the amount of posts you have in these forums. your felted sweaters made into bags sound pretty cool! I'd to see pics! I've heard of Cottage Yarns, I think they go to Stitches West.

My son moved to SF a year ago.. I went for a visit and hit all the yarn stores I found by googling it was so much fun!! I went to Noi Knits...Greenwich I think... and a couple more.

It is a fun place!! Loved Ikea in Oakland and we are getting one here soon!!!
